The IT team supporting the National Weather Service (NWS) Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD) is responsible for the services enabling radar operation, data collection, analysis and application. The software applications they manage not only drive the employment of the radar, but also what data is collected and how it is used. This project supports nearly 200 Doppler weather radars that provide critical tornado and severe weather warning observations across the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Azores, and Korea. The information set includes weather and atmospheric conditions as well as data on other environmental factors such as the effects of man-made structures, bird and insect migration and pollen dispersion.
